    Your argument is potentially more ludicrous than my own! I accept your premise that Dumbledore would not leave the students to run amok around a teacherless classroom and will as such leave that alone.

    However, your assertion that because the students are Dumbledore-trained Transfiguration masters, the wizarding war is automatically won as though this is all it would ever take is so absurd it borders on insulting. It is somewhat like saying "Why don't you just unleash the US military into the battle of Hogwarts? Even wizards can't deny the force of raw Texan firepower!"

    Let me draw your attention to this passage from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince which automatically destroys your argument. Now, if you'll turn to page 24:

    The Prime Minister gazed hopelessly at the pair of them for a moment, then the words he had fought to suppress all evening burst from him at last.
    'But for heaven's sake, you're wizards! You can do magic! Surely you can sort out - well - anything!'
    Scrimgeour turned slowly on the spot and exchanged an incredulous look with Fudge, who really did manage a smile this time as he said kindly, 'The trouble is, the other side can do magic too, Prime Minister.'
    And with that, the two wizards stepped one after the other into the bright green fire and vanished.
    One could submit, however, that the Transfiguration teacher that Dumbledore did employ in McGonagall's stead, being a different person, may not have had the backbone that McGonagall did to stand up to Snape or the Death Eaters in the final battle, or care enough about Harry to do all that she did in the lead-up. He could even have employed a disguised Death Eater - Dumbledore himself has said that even he is not infallible.

    Your cupcake is on its way to England. I had to send it in five separate envelopes because one would not contain the cakey goodness. I hope it is acceptable to you to eat it in installments. Dieticians say that it is best to eat more often in smaller portions anyway as it aids in digestion. This is important if you are going to remain thin and beautiful. It will also help if we're going to get you laid again before your teen years are complete .

    I never once said I could beat Hermione, I only said Ron. Which I maintain is true. I expect Hermione would thank me anyway; she was always able to do better than him. I don't understand why she would have settled.

    I refuse to feed anyone who's too blindly warped to see that Ron is the epitome of grace, selflessness, wide-eyed wonderment and really great hair.
    LMFAO. Oh god I can't.

    Now, *ahem*, back into the serious business. McGonagall may be a less central character to the series, but that does not at all affect her degree of awesomeness. I also dispute the idea that if you remove her from every scene in which she appears, nothing would change. Think of all those Transfiguration lessons, the children running wild while Hermione attempts to read her textbook to get some degree of value out of the class. Eventually, Dumbledore decides he must step in and teach the class himself - after all, Transfiguration was his old post.

    Being the wonderful teacher and headmaster that he is, he transfigures the entire school into Transfiguration masters, however the extra time spent in the classroom and in lesson planning, exam marking and other teacherly duties means that he no longer has the time to put into such endeavours as The Order of the Phoenix and protecting Harry. Thus the entire wizarding war runs far less effective and efficiently and missteps taken by Dumbledore result in Harry dying and Voldemort ruling the land for all eternity. xD

    Never underestimate the importance of Minerva McGonagall sir. I will end you. No, she will end you. Whereas I'm absolutely positive that even with Ron's magical powers, I could take him in a fight

    I don't need to defend McGonagall, sir. She is more than capable of defending herself. Ron, on the other hand, would barely know the arse-end of a wand.

    His only skill is wizard's chess. It was very convenient that it came in handy that one time, but honestly how often would you find a practical application for that?

    Also, I want a cupcake. Fetch me one.

    LMFAO. "You do". omg dying.

    Though if I forgot Ron it was because he was an ultimately useless and forgettable character, not because of my dementia.

    I'm glad to hear that! Even if it is a somewhat Tuesdays with Morrie type friendship, what with me sitting here in my bathchair while you talk to me about the boy-wizard who was around during my childhood, so many years ago...

    Is that all you have to say for yourself? Usually you are one with the words!

    Or is this part of you no longer having time for the likes of me?

    The first few games were amazing (books 1, 2, 3 and to a lesser extent, 4) because they were more freeform and you got to go around exploring the castle. Then after that they became too story-driven and you had no freedom anymore

    AAAAAAAAAAA Oh man I hated that game. Maybe that's why I remembered the line, because I hated that game so much yet I had to make myself play til I'd finished it

    I did not destroy any words! It is a perfectly valid writing technique to write words how they sound when said in order to create a sense of colloquial familiarity! I refer you to every line ever written in Hagrid's voice in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

    ...Covey. Covey. I want to sit down with that man over tea and have him repeat that word until he sees sense. Covey. Also how do you know this? He never once mentioned that in his baby article. Did you go researching his choice in baby name? Did this interest you enough to go looking? I'm a little shattered. You are going to have children and love them and make them your world, aren't you?

    As for that line - AHA. I do know! Well that's a lie. I don't know who said it (probably somebody like Malfoy......... no. Malfoy wouldn't say "reckons". Perhaps a Slytherin jackass such as Blaise Zabini) but I do remember that it was said about Susan Bones' aunt during the fifth book because she voted for Harry to be cleared of the charges he faced at trial. I know this because for some reason I've re-read the fifth book the most out of all the books (though I'm not sure why. It's not even my favourite lmao).

    ...........oh god what is a bathchair.

About Me

  • About Barrels
    I was born. Then I grew up. But that wasn’t fun, so I grew back down again and started catching Pokémon.

    Most people are decent - and the more friends you make, the better life gets. So if you'd like to say hi, go ahead and do that thing! ;)
    I like creating. Writing, drawing, vidding, programming… you name it, there’s a good chance I’ve failed abysmally at it. (Probably had fun though.)

    In general? Philosophising about stuff I’ll never know, reading Brian Michael Bendis, ordering things I have no need of from Amazon, arting around in Photoshop and watching old Munsters episodes. Not all at the same time.

    Snorlax. Since forever. I used to dream about getting a big ol’ Snorlax-shaped beanbag.

    …Who am I kidding? I *still* dream about that.
